It’s not even mid-September and we’re already thinking about the end of the harvest. We’re not done yet and there are more grapes to be picked. But a good part of this year’s vintage is already fermenting in our cellar. And it does look good indeed!

Next in line are Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch grapes. What remains afterwards are only specialties that are left for a purpose. Cabernet Sauvignon always needs two or three weeks more ripening for example. That would normally mean a harvest date in mid-Ocotber. We’re much more thinking about the end of this month tough. Talk about climate change! Still we’re hoping for early frost this year because we would really like to pick some icewine again. Keep your fingers crossed!
